Today, I had the opportunity to see a preview of Tom Skill's opening keynote presentation. It was the Rickey Henderson of presentations. It was the perfect lead-off to a great day. The presentation touches on and can be referenced by every presentation for the remainder of the day. Tom Skill and his colleagues at UD used 80 sources to research what the technology landscape will be in 2013. Attendees will learn their findings and also walk away with something else.
Paul Moorman and I often talk about different software we use and web sites that we visit. I liked his blog posts about what he uses but I did not think that anyone would care what I used. I am in a unique position of being close to the IT industry, without the need to answer to regulations or an IT department, and without sensitive data on my computer. That gives me the unique freedom to try new software. Additionally, I have a great computer that lets me clog my registry with these new programs. Credit for most of these finds goes to Lifehacker.com. Here is what I use.
Can you please provide any solutions to this in the comments? The company is not in the Dayton region.
I’m wondering if you could steer me to someone who would be willing to chat about our IT needs. I just don’t seem to be up to speed on what is available anymore. There has been soooo much proliferation!
At the Dayton Technology First CIO Forecast on December 9th, there were a number of key insights set forth about what firms should expect in 2010. The Forecast was facilitated by Burton Group Executive Strategist Jack Santos; participants included Rob Whittington of WorkflowOne, Jim Bradley of Motoman, John Huelsman of Midmark, and Jon Russell of Kettering Health Network. While these executives’ companies are all based in the Dayton Ohio area, their perspectives correspond to those of other organizations that Burton Group interacts with:

I really liked this Y2K retrospective on Slate, http://www.slate.com/id/2235357/entry/2235359/. The article makes a point that it is one of the few times in recent history where people worked pro-actively to work on something. The article asks the question if we spent too much time and money worrying about the problem. I wish that the article had deleved into that answer deeper.
Taste of IT attendance is going great! This conference is going to be huge and with 40 exhibitors, we are going to have a lot of great information sharing.
Thanks to the Dayton and Cincinnati IT communities for so strongly supporting this event!
I got to go to the CIO Council meeting today. The meeting was at Speedway SuperAmerica's headquarters with Marty Inkrott hosting. It was a great location and a really interesting company.
